where hundreds of thousands of music fans attended the lollapalooza festival in august.natthe hotel confirms that someone named stephen paddock made a reservation for that weeklend ... but never showed... leaving authorities with a new puzzle."what stopped him? what interceded with his plans?and in the days before before he unleashed the worst mass shooting in modern u=s history ... paddock rented a room at the ogden condominium in downtown las vegas ... natoverlooking the annual life is beautiful festival.natbut it was from this room in the mandalay bay hotel where the mass shooting played out. natpolice now believe paddock may have planned more carnage after the shooting.he was doing everything possible to figure out how he could escape.in his car in the hotel parking lot, investigators found another 16=hundred rounds of ammunition and 50 pounds of explosives, specifically tannerite, seen here in a demonstration.boom (catherine) paddock never made it out of

one ad for bump stocks. today the president and g-o-p congressional leaders...said they are open to reviewing policy on bump stocks. the n-r-a says the device should be " subject to additional regulations." bump stocks were originally created with the idea of making it easier for people with disabilities to shoot a gun. the a-t-f...under the obama administration.. .signed off on them in 20-10... after concluding they did not violate federal law. now gun sellers say they're seeing a spike in sales of bump stocks. one shop owner in maine says he had five on his shelf collecting dust for months. yesterday he sold four. another shop in austin texas says they've been getting about 50 people a day asking for them now. they were even sold on walmart's website ---although now that listing has been pulled.

bart is hoping this new photo will lead to more tips and eventually his arrestsot this is a case we really want to get to the bottom of , these instances are relatively rare on bart but one is one too many and especially this one which happened in broad daylight, just after the morning commute this is unacceptable and we have to find this guythose travelling through the hayward station were split as to whether they felt safe on bart, but most were taking steps so they would not be victimized.sot sit with my back to the last seatsot i don't use my phone sot and i don't look down and i don't use headphones if i'm riding and if i do i keep the level low, i stay aware of my surrounding with pepper spray also127/pepper spray also (steve)(steve) (steve) governor jerry
